WhatsApp Groups

Chat with other members

We have a lively and busy GIN & Bombay Tonic WhatsApp group that you can join if you want to.

Besides the main GIN & Bombay Tonic WhatsApp group, we also have 2 additional (and optional) special interest groups where members can chat about certain topics of interest, go into more detail and initiate (and host) events being set up (and I am happy to set up the events on our Meetup group).

The 2 WhatsApp groups are:

  1. GIN Food & Films – talk about food, recipes, events to visit Indian restaurants. Yummy! Also talk about films, songs, stars and the glamour of Bollywood. Organise trips to watch Bollywood films or concerts.

  2. GIN Well Being Group – talk about being LGBTQ, issues around sexuality, race and racism, parents, family, feelings around isolation and shame (topics in books like “Velvet Rage”, “Straight Jacket”, “Love me as I am”) and anything else on people’s minds. Linked to Sathi Deeper Conversations events. Also discussions on spirituality, philosophy, meditation, faith, festivals and self realisation.

To get onto the WhatsApp groups, please join our Meetup group and send a message to the group organiser, or contact us be email.
